In case you were wondering whether things had simmered down in this back and forth between MSNBC and FNC….well…they haven’t. Last night Keith Olbermann put Brit Hume on the “Worse, Worser, Worst” list for comments he made.
Tonight’s runner up: Brit Hume of Fox News. Wherever you might be on this immigration debate, can you abide someone characterizing yesterday’s nationwide peaceful protest by immigrants the way he did - a “repellent spectacle”? Hey pal, I’ve seen your newscasts. You’re skating on thin ice when you call something else a repellent spectacle.
But left himself and his attack wide open for criticism by attributing Hume’s comments to the wrong event.
Meanwhile during the same hour over on FNC, Bill O’Reilly was tweaking MSNBC over the rumors that there was going to be a prime time shuffle. Which begs the question, which blogs are O’Reilly and/or his staff reading? Because that rumor got shot down in the afternoon. So why run it?
Also, there is a rumor of another primetime shakeup at MSNBC. In the past seven years that disaster has declined 63 percent in the primetime ratings, while FOX News has increased 86 percent.
Ridiculous? Not to us.
Don’t you feel better now that you’ve gotten your weekly dose of this cable soap opera?
